Praying with Paul: 'Christ, Our Yes'

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

2 Corinthians 1:12-20

Amen! Yes! Abba, Dear Father,

Let me find pride in this - that my conscience testifies that I live my life in this world with holiness and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by your graciousness.

Help me not to vacillate as I make my plans. Don't let me be like those who are worldly, ready to say "Yes" and "No" at the same time, talking out of both sides of their mouth.

As surely as you, God, are faithful, let me act in good faith toward others. For your Son, Jesus Christ, in whom I believe by the preaching of the Good News, was not Yes and No, but was Yes! For all your promises find your Yes through him. So through him we utter the Yes, the Amen, at the close of our prayers - to your glory.

In the name of Jesus I ask this and utter my Yes! my Amen! according to his will. Yes! Amen!
